Turner started at CI three-and-a-half years ago as a security analyst and rose quickly, first as a manager and then as the SOC leader. He led the opening of CI’s second SOC in Ellensburg, Washington, and was instrumental in creating Managed Detection and Response for Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Environments.
The two additions to the CI leadership team position the company for significant growth this year.
